Leave a Stack of Books for Someone
*I am currently working my way through my fourth semester of the Information and Learning Technologies master’s program at University of Colorado, Denver. This is the fourteenth post within a series of Daily Creates that I’ve been assigned to complete for a course titled Digital Storytelling.
Today’s Daily Create stated: “Leave 1, 2, or more books you no longer need to keep in a public place for someone else; if you choose leave a request to contact you by email. Take one photo and do not look back. This is modeled after The Reading Project.”
I don’t have a “Leave a Stack of Books for Someone” photo. I’m playing the rebel role on this one and doing the opposite of what the activity asks for! So I present to you, a picture of the one and only book I’ve ever found and taken home with me. I found this book about five years ago, on a bench outside of a shop on Main Street, in downtown Durango. It had no name attached to it, no one to claim it, and it’s a collection of poems by one of my most absolute favorite poets. It’s like the book was meant for me. (Sadly, I only have volume two of the twenty-five volume set, and this volume does not state the publication date. The book is old, but online searching failed in helping me determine how old. The entire set is for sale on eBay right now for $599, but my money tree quit growing money and keeps spitting bills at me. Weird how that happens.)
